Liam just came into my room and handed me these two quarters. He said “Mom, here are two quarters so that you can go buy me, Stella, Hattie, and Finn Christmas gifts”. I said, “Do you think 2 quarters will be enough to buy presents for all four of you?” He pointed out the dates on each quarter which read 1990 and 1997 and said, “YES! Read here, that means they are worth thousand each!”
Liam’s offer was so adorable and heartfelt… he really thought he was giving me the money to buy gifts for everyone and was so proud to do so. He’s such a sweet boy, and although 50 cents may not pay for everything on my babes’ lists, it’s a gesture I’ll remember forever.
Have your kids said anything this holiday season that warmed your heart (and maybe made you chuckle at the same time)?
